LOL, bingo. There's no way to figure out what percentage of black women in Atlanta date white men but it is more than just a few. The chance is reduced to 0.0% when you frame the question in the form of the thread question.

Like everyone else, the thing you have to be concerned about having game. If you have game, nothing else matters.

Also I'd like to point out that where I'm from is a lower to middle class area at best which is very mixed, almost 50/50 on the east side of indy. So it may not be the same in ATL where there may be more of an upper class or at least more middle class mix of people. So my experience may be different but it is my experience.
No I don't have red hair and I'm glad, I have blonde/light brown hair.
I just wish had more of it, damn thinning and receeding hair.

Here's a pic of my mane...and my myfittedsDOTcom exclusive custom Vancouver Grizzlies fitted, limited to 36!

Why are you talking about Indy in the ATL forum? Have you been to ATL yet or are you just planning on visiting/moving here like I am?

I was planning on walking up to her in Tim Meadows "The Ladies' Man" voice and saying; "girl, yo blackness is turnin' my white ass on."

Anything came be broken down into numbers, I just want to see if numbers can help me avoid a mistake.

A hundred girls? What am I the hunchback of Notre Dame?
Can't get anywhere now, no liscense and I'm so far out in the country there's no bus service.

You mean those sites with the black girls who are willing to let white guys do anything to them aren't real?

I once went to a co-ed basketball camp when I was 14 and followed around this one girl like a lost puppy dog, we ate lunch together and such, she was annoyed by me but too nice to say it.
I've checked her out on the internet since, she's real into being black, kinda afro-centric.
I'm just worried about the history of the south and if tensions are still high.

Why can't it be like doing research for a project or a sociological study?
Isn't that what we're all doing here when we research a new town?

I asked for an estimate! Like how many of them seem like they hate white people?

Although my last post was mostly in jest, I'm serious when I say there is no easy way to figure that out especially when you are considering several hundred thousand people. I could throw out a percentage (my guess is around 5% or a little lower), but it wouldn't mean much. On the other hand it is not uncommon at all here and especially so in the younger generation (teens and 20s).

Not for nothing, most of my single black women friends are more concerned about finding a nice guy with a stable job and that isn't gay. Seeing as how that's hard to find then skin color is pretty low down on the priority list.

Okay you go from saying to 5 percent or lower to saying color isn't much of an issue, me confused.

Well, considering that there are almost 2 million black folks in Atlanta with more than half being women, 5% isn't really that small amount of people. Also, I find the amount it occurs and societies ability to handle it to be two separate issues. I'm in an inter-cultural relationship myself and while I do not feel like we get stares when we go out and disapproving nods, we definitely are in the minority of couples. Basically, it may not happen a lot, but that's not because people are wary of it (to me at least).

The Internet has any number of match sites in which the Atlanta area is probably well represented. Why not put an ad on one or more of those indicating your interest ?

And guys who need to move to other cities to get dates are what?

Seriously though, there are all sorts of women who use online dating. A lot couldn't get a date at a blind oil workers camp in Barrow, Alaska but some are actually attractive and intelligent. They're just busy and don't have the patience for other methods of meeting people. A lot are new to the area too.

And to address the original issue: from what I've read from your posts, and from what you've pretty much admitted, you are a white guy who identifies more with black culture and in a sense "acts black." At least it seems that way. There's nothing wrong with that but I think you may be trying too hard with it. I don't really know how receptive the black women who date white guys in Atlanta are to white guys like you. I'm sure there are some that love it but most I know date "normal" white guys. I'm trying to say it in as PC a way as possible but I think black women who date white guys are attracted to them as much as how they act as how they look. A lot of white women date black men for the same reason. Of course nowadays people are bound to defy stereotypes and do it every day.

I've gotten plenty of attention from black women but I'm a stereotypical dorky white guy.

I don't need to move, I want to move, I've turned down chicks before, I'm not Mexican.
I just don't like the flavors of the northwest, the women are all kinda fishy.

Maybe I'll fuddledunk with a dating site out of curiosity, I still can't believe people will meet someone off the internet, that's just weird to me, you never know who's really behind the monitor.

You gotta be open minded and explore all options though. How is meeting a stranger online different from approaching someone in the grocery store or something like that. At least you know if you have something in common through these dating sites.

I can understand the way you feel about women in a certain area. I prefer the directness of New York women to the relatively reserved southern women but I realize Atlanta is a big city and all types live here. You just have to try harder if you are looking for a specific type.
